Is there a way to just upgrade from 4.1.0 to 4.1.4. ?

I tried an upgrade on a fresh install of 4.1.3 with minimal mods and it had problems. So I expect it would not work with 4.1.0

All in all 4.1.4 is great. To those that said the FireFox issue was false. Nope it was real! They made a patch for it.

Question: For some reason, it seems that if you import a sheet of products, it will not autocreate the category. Is that just my computer or is that a new X-cart thing? Versions prior would create it for you.

I swear this was like going to the dealership to get my car fixed. Post a message and BOOM! it now works.

Let me test this theory out, does anyone have $1,000,000 they can give me? I lost mine and need to use it to make $1,000,000. If this works then next year, I will make $1,000,000 before you can give it to me. HA HA!

FEATURE REQUEST:
When you add an extra field to the product database, give it an option to show only in admin as well. Right now, if you don't display it on the site you can't do a product search for it in admin within "Search for Products."

BTW, anyone having difficulty getting the "Image Verification" to work -- make sure the php GD Library is installed on your server.

http://www.php.net/gd

I can't find any references to this in any of the xcart read-me docs, or the x-cart website (the only reference to GD Lib was related to X-Magnifier): http://www.x-cart.com/cart_system_requirements.html

Quote:
Advanced requirements and recommended settings

Certain parts of X-Cart's functionality rely on using external files. Accordingly, your web server must be allowed to run external executable files (like Perl) and to make outgoing connections to the Internet (that is required for online payments). Loopback connections must be allowed by server firewall (required for HTML catalog feature).
The following components may be required:
  • GDLib 2.0 or higher (for X-Magnifier addon).

Well, this should be changed to include "Image verification". X-Cart is trying to charge me 25 support points to tell me to enable GD. I am contesting this as we speak.

[EDITED: X-cart has agreed to not charge me for this "advice". Thank you. They agree that this should be clearly documented.]

A simple, "we failed to put this into our published specs or readme" would have been the right thing to do. Call it a "product warranty issue".

Anyone else had to pay support points for this issue?

I'm a little upset since x-cart is using many of us as their beta site, and then when we report bugs, sometimes we get hit with support points. This is simply wrong.

<rant> Dear x-cart: you can't have it both ways! You can't release buggy products and get early adopters to gamble on using it, and then charge us for fixing your mistakes. Failure to document the code is as much a bug as faulty code. If you knew GD Lib was needed for Image verification, you should have stated it somehwere. Otherwise, you can't be charging your customers to correct your inadequate documentation. </rant>

[EDITED: X-Cart did the right thing and they are not going to charge for this "advice". A reminder to everyone that a forum search is as important as any printed docs. Now we know. ]

Agreed, state it at least the following 2 places:

1) during installation where the installer is checking for critical dependencies
2) during activating Image Verification in the Modules screen, automatically do a check test for GD Lib. If not installed, uncheck the Image Verification checkbox and display a warning so that we don't assume that it is on and working.

Agreed!

I think the only reason I knew that GD Lib was required was that the 3rd-party mods out there for CAPTCHAs stated it was a required element.

Unfortunately for me, I have gdlib enabled and image verification still does not work on a fresh install of v4.1.4. I'm guessing its a server config issue though, since it seems enabling gdlib did the trick for the rest of you.

I have this too, did anybody find a solution to this?
